WHAT IT IS: Serpent, the signature symbol of Roberto Cavalli, is feminine, sensual and dangerously charming. The composition is built around mango blossom known in Hindu legends as the food of Gods. According to a Brazilian legend, snakes eat mango blossom. This floral-oriental composition opens with sweet mandarin notes and mango blossom. The heart introduces exotic Tiare flower and rich scent of Frangipani blossom, refined by violets and black pepper. The oriental base is built on harmony of Tolu balsam, sandalwood and amber.
KEY NOTES: Mango blossom, sandalwood, amber
INCLUDES: Serpentine Eau De Parfum; Size: 3.4 fl oz

Described by the New York Times as “the Italian fashion designer with a gypsy soul,” Roberto Cavalli has forever transformed the fashion industry through his use of flashy, high-end animal prints, printed lightweight leather, and luxurious sandblasted denim. Launched in 2002, Cavalli’s perfume collection captures all the vigor and free-spiritedness of his leopard- and zebra-skin clothing line, with scents ranging from woody and earthy (Man) and spicy (Just Cavalli’s I Love Him) to fruity (Serpentine, Roberto Cavalli Eau de Parfum) and floral (Just Cavalli’s I Love Her). Ingredients range from sandalwood and peppercorn to mango, violet leaves, and vanilla. Since debuting his first collection in 1970, Cavalli has built an empire that includes Just Cavalli and his flagship label as well as Class Roberto Cavalli (casual clothing), Angels & Devils (kids’ clothing), perfume, and several eclectic side projects (a café, a nightclub, even a vodka).
